The best comps of Patch 11.8 based on our TFT tier list.

Best compositions

In accordance with our rankings of the best champions, Classes and Origins, we now give you our best comps in Patch 11.8 based on the rankings from our TFT tier list. This will denote the units you should buy in each comp, as well as the best supplemental synergies to pair those comps with. We will also include the best Chosen units or traits you should be looking for to make these comps work.

We will put an asterisk next to the units that should be the main focus of these comps on our TFT tier list, to get to 2 or 3-stars and put items on. Note that when we recommend specific units of a Class/Origin but omit others for your pairings, we are saying these are the options we would consider to be above average or worthwhile additions to your comp.
